    This looks like an interesting movie, too. I probably won't see it in theaters, but it'll be a good DVD rental.

    It's directed by the star, Frank Whaley and I agree that it could be a good tale.
    Hopefully the director won't get too self-indulgent as this is obviously a pet project of his.

    If this one is going to make it, it will need massive word of mouth support.

    I have never heard of this, but want to see some kind of preview before I decide.

    This movie started out as an Indie film, and opened in Toronto and Sundance last year.

    It's based on an off-Broadway play called "Veins and Thumbtacks". It was shot in 2000, with a budget of just over $1 million. Frank Whaley (who directed "Joe the King") is in all but one scene, and was hit by a car during the filming (but not seriously injured). It's only opening in NY/LA this weekend, but is scheduled to expand to other cities.

    I think it's more along the distribution lines of MBFGW.
